I would like to make a font family. Vatra Typeface. This typeface is inspired from the wonderful eastern-european folk tales, from the old church typography, from the beautiful rustic graphic patterns of the many eastern-european cultures, and from the amazing amount of beautiful traditional culture the last generations have left us. I will bring it all to life and give it a new, clean and modern look by synthesizing everything to the very essence.
